Arriving in Canada for the last week of September, the 2016 Royal Tour of Canada included a stop right here in Kelowna. We were honoured to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Kelowna this past week. After visiting UBC Okanagan to celebrate the campus' 10th anniversary and take in an Okanagan Heat volleyball game, Will and Kate travelled to Mission Hill Estate Winery to attend the Taste of British Columbia Festival. Here are a few photos from their visit.
